If you are looking for a Private Investigator who is genuine, always real, and will go way beyond his way to help you, then you are in the right place. Due to the seriousness of my case, I wanted to find the best person that can help me and advise me properly. After the initial consultation with the owner Eric, I was confident that he is the person I want in my corner. He has a tremendous experience which he used to help me in all aspects of my case. He was able to dig up information that helped me get the Justice I deserve. Throughout the whole experience, Eric became more that just a Private Investigator, he is now a friend that has gained my trust and respect for a lifetime. Keep up the good work!

I was met with excellent service, completely worth every penny. He was extremely quick at responding to me and the report was sent to me with-in 15 minutes. I've worked with other private investigators in the past and by far Nathans Investigations and his staff have provided me with the most information and peace of mind during the entire process. I would completely recommend his agency to anyone seeking to do an investigation. What I liked the most was his 100% honesty and how on top of things he was. He didn't try to "sell" me on anything and he was very upfront about what I would or would not get on this report. I am so grateful I made the decision to go with Eric.

Michael has helped me immensely. I had "met" someone online and just a few days prior to getting on a plane and flying three hours to meet this individual in person...something just didn't feel right. I felt like I needed to dig a little deeper as well listen to my conscious, which I'm sad to admit that I was ignoring. There were a few red flags but I wanted to remain positive and give this new person the benefit of the doubt. However, more red flags were popping up, stories weren't consistent anymore/making sense, as well a lot of shady personality traits were starting to surface. I was starting to panic internally thinking the worst and not knowing where to turn or what to do. I was feeling bad about cancelling just two days prior to flying out and wondering if it was my nerves or that I was possibly just overthinking things.. I thought to myself that it would probably be a good idea to hire a private investigator just prior to leaving. Michael Cole was the perfect fit, especially with his extensive law enforcement background he has definitely heard/seen it all! Talking with Michael for the first time and briefly explaining everything to him over the phone he was adamant about me cancelling this trip almost immediately. He was very real with me, hard facts - real! He didn’t like anything I was telling him..or about this guy and didn’t hold back on sharing what he really thought about all of it. He is honest, straightforward and supportive all the way through. He was in constant contact with me throughout this process and answered all of my questions — funny enough, even prior to me asking them. Michael helped to confirm that this man is a con artist with a bad reputation who is manipulative and takes advantage of people and situations. He was able to bring to light old lawsuits, fraud charges and violations not only in the U.S. but also in Canada. As well newspaper articles written about him dissecting his character and the type of person he really is. The articles highlight previous scams he’s orchestrated, failures, lies/deceit, and his false promises. (This really could be a new episode of American Greed) Working with Michael was the best decision I could have made in all of this. Deep down I feel like if I had gone on this trip it would have ended in much more than just disappointment.. and something much scarier... I put myself at serious risk… and I would have been his prey. Since cancelling my plans and briefly giving my reason on why I chose to do so in a brief text message. I decided to block the guy since I don’t care for his response and do not want to hear from him in the future. Since then, of course I have opened myself up to receive a crazy amount of “unknown caller ID” phone calls even after blocking his phone number. Michael has been incredible in all of this and is still guiding me on making the next move,… possibly that being of a police report on stalking. Thank you for everything!

Mr. Michael Cole was very outstanding with his performance resolving my issue involving information that would have taken me months to receive. Mr. Michael Cole expertise as a private investigator, he jumped right in on the job and worked very hard from sun up to sun down. He did not stop until he received some answers the first day I hired him. He was professional about his service and went over and above the call of duty. He displayed compassion and concern for me as a client to make sure my issue was resolve as soon as possible. Mr. Cole made several phone calls and got to the source really quickly. I had spent about six months trying to get information that took him two days to get. I receive a phone call the very next day from the sources that would would not return any of my phone calls. My situation was resolved in two days. Mr. Cole contact me first from Thumbtack and my first instinct tells me to take the person that contacts me first. This means either they are serious about their business or have none. Mr. Cole is serious about his business. He call me back every time I call his or text him in less than a minute. I thank him for resolving my issue, he kind and has a nice sense of humor and care about his clients. I would recommend him and re use his service in the future if need. Thank you again, Mr. Cole stay Blessed!

I contacted Michael Cole to see if he could assist in finding out information on a man I recently began dating as there were too many inconsisticies in things he was telling me, and I wanted the truth. Michael was incredibly helpful and took the time to ask me the right questions and recommend the most effective and right course of action. He was very responsive, genuine and caring and I appreciated his candor and insight. Ultimately his recommendation was to not pursue the investigation, for obvious reasons, the man I was dating was clearly a liar. This demonstrated to me that Michael was very client-focused and not looking to provide services that weren't necessary and of value to just make money off of me. He spent the time to talk me out of doing something I already knew the answer to and what would've been a waste of my money. I so appreciated his experience and willingness to be direct, upfront and honest with me. If I'm ever in need of a investigator, I assure you he will be the first call that I make. It's nice to know there are still genuine, client-centric and caring people in the world. I would highly recommend Michael without hesistation! Rebecca M. from Connecticut

My Brother abandoned his Family some 25 yrs ago leaving wife and 3 yr old daughter. We were told several years later that he had passed away some 10 yrs after he left and was presumed to be buried in a “Potters Grave” in the NYC area. My niece wanted to visit her fathers grave for closure and through a Family friend we requested Mr Cavallo’s Company to locate his grave.We knew the chances of finding him were very slim seeing we had no idea where he was other then this rumor that he was buried somewhere in the Tri-State area in a Potters Grave which are usually unmarked. We retained Mr Cavallo knowing that this was probably not going to have a happy ending seeing there was no leads to follow. We heard from Mr Cavallo on a weekly basis never giving us any kind of hope or inclination that he had actually gotten a lead early on which took him to Northern California. 18 days after we retained Mr Cavallo our phone rang and as he usually did he called us but this time he started with “is your Family with you right now” and I said yes and he said “ I HAVE FOUND HIM” and I said where he is,when did he pass”?Mr Cavallo said “No you do not understand I found him in Northern California and he is alive”! I completely broke down and you could hear in Mr Cavallo’s voice that he was becoming very emotional and he said “Would you like to speak to him”? “Of course I said yes”! And then I spoke to my Brother for the first time in almost 25 years. The amazing part of this story is that not only did Mr Cavallo find him 3000 miles from where he was last seen but he had been Homeless for almost the entire time that he was living outdoors.How do you find someone who has been living on the streets for most of his adult life when he is thought to be dead? We were only aware of Mr Cavallo by reputation but what he did in this situation regarding finding someone who did not want to be found is nothing short of a Miracle. All story’s do not have happy endings as does this as well because my Brother after getting together with all of our Family has chosen to continue his life of Homelessness.” We often share this story and there have been discussion of making a movie on my brother’s life and how Mr Cavallo came to finding him which is such a huge story in itself and cannot be told properly here but if you have a loved one that is Missing do not even bother using anyone else just retain Chris Cavallo.He is one of the finest investigators and one of the most compassionate and generous persons I have ever known.

Mr. Jimmy Maheux of CSIS is a true professional in every sense of the word. He was able to meet me the same day I contacted him and to my surprise he was patient to all my questions and very knowledgeable on the subject. His ability to analyze tough challenges and rapidly provide logical recommendations made him a clear choose for the job at hand. I had to leave the country the following day, but Jimmy kept me inform of all he was doing. There was not a day that went by (while he was on the case) that I did not receive numerous phone calls, e-mail or text on how the investigation was developing. Thanks to Jimmy and his team, my suspensions were confirmed, which gave me a clearer vision on how to procced with my legal case. I left the country again after receiving photos, video and detail reports on my case and did not have a chance to tell Jimmy. Even though of the clock, Jimmy called me to make sure I was doing ok. During the contracted period, he demonstrated tireless dedication to duty, uncommon initiative, and an outstanding ability to get the job done. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a Private Investigator. I will hire him again in a heartbeat.

My experience with Jimmy was nothing less than imaculent. Of all the investigators i have spoken to he was the only one who sincerely cared about my situation and already had information prepared from the start. Wonderful person to work with. I couldnt have requested anyone better. And relieved to finally be free of assumption and now know the truth thanks to him.

We had an apartment in our complex broken into at least three times within a short amount of time. We felt uneasy and decided to hire Sig on a temporary basis. From the moment I called them I felt I was in good hands. Very professional. I would highly recommend them. The guard that came out was also professional and I knew I was in good hands and was able to get a good night of sleep.

All Global Investigations, Inc has been a blessing in disguise. The service provided was absolutely what I needed in my time of need. Mr. Delacruz was very conducive to my case, I was going through a tough time with my soon to be ex-husband concerning the safety of our 2 children. Because of the service I was able to provide the courts with evidence proving that the father of my children was not suitable to have even joint custody of our children. I commend Mr. Delacruzs' professionalism, quality and dedication of work to my case. It was an honor.

I needed some assistance to visit one of my warehouses where the staff was being difficult and intimidating. Juno's presence made me feel much more confident and allowed me to deal with the staff without incident. Additionally, the staff at the warehouse made several insulting remarks to Juno and his partner and he handled it like a true professional and didn't bat an eye. I would highly recommend them.

Eagle, Globe & Anchor did exactly what they said they would do in less time than I expected. I had a botched surgery and we were trying to get the surgeon served, but apparently this individual was good at covering his tracks. He was never in the office and no one had a record of his home address. My attorneys had tried different agencies and methods of locating this surgeon and had given up. I called Eagle, Globe & Anchor and explained the situation. Mr. Gonzalez said he couldn't make any promises but that he would do his best. About 2 hours later, he called me back with the surgeon's primary home address, secondary home address and a private office address. He also provided the telephone numbers for each. Of course, he couldn't release that information directly to me because of liability reasons, but he did telephone my attorneys and provided them the information that allowed us to have the good surgeon served the same day. My case is now currently working its way through the system and I can guarantee you that it wouldn't have happened if Mr. Gonzalez hadn't done what he said he would try. I'm truly indebted to him.
